I want to use a 16 lb draw weight bow to focus on form, hook, release, etc.
In addition, I hope this practice will help build strength after a long period of inactivity.
What arrows should I use? The bow is a 66" takedown recurve and it can easily handle my 27.5" draw as it increases.
This weight was ordered 4 months ago..finally got it done! This one is forged with a dull axe for a treebark pattern. First forged brass weight. I like it! And a brass bottle weight in the works...forging to be added soon...hopefully not 4 months from now
Up for sale I have a Heavy Weight Hill Style Longbow. RH. 62” [email protected](yes 93)

Sell for $265.00 shipped to lower 48 states or trade for ILF riser or limbs of equal value.
Hi all, could someone please advise me on wooden arrows for my 1972 Damon Howatt Hunter 35#/28”. I cannot find manufacturers recommendations/limit, I don’t want to go too low, I draw 26” shooting to 55 yards max, field 3D only and like to be point on at 25-30 yards.
I inherited a bear alaskan recurve, it don't see any writing of what the poundage is but when tried it maybe on the 55 lbs. Also some surface cracking on the limb (glass coating) Is it possible to sand down the glass coating then scrape some of the wood material to bring this bow into a lower...
Is there a rule of thumb regarding how much length cut off an arrow equals “x” amount of point weight reduction.
Something like reducing arrow length by .25” is the same as reducing point weight by 25 grain? Totally just throwing that out as an example.
I’m looking for a one piece longbow to practice form and leisurely shooting, something that is 30lbs at my 30-31” DL. I’ve been searching for bows 68-70 AMO and 25lbs @ 28” but haven’t found much.
Southwest Archery Scorpion has a 25lbs option and favorable reviews. Others like the...
Lets say you make a riser and you plan to put ILF recurve limbs on it(not super curves.)
You have steeper limb angles than normal.
You add some more deflex to the riser to keep the brace height comfortable.
You choose a string length to keep basically the same resting tension on the limbs you...
I shoot a 42lb (at my draw length of 31") Turkish bow - with a thumb ring, not fingers.
I make my own arrows and I'm about to get some decent bamboo shafts. The informed sources about Asiatic archery and bamboo arrows say that (because of bamboo's different resonant frequency/ different nodal...
I have a DAS Tribute, but it is too heavy for my bum shoulder. I looked in the documentation for the tribute to see how I can remove the riser weights (for now). I have it for sale, but I would like to keep it. Eventually my shoulder will get stronger.
How do you remove the riser weights on a...
I have developed bursitis/ tendonitis in my bow arm shoulder which makes shooting my recurve and longbow extremely painful. Each time I draw the bow, it's all I can do to hold the bow at full draw without shaking. I put some lighter limbs on my takedown recurve and at my draw length I am now...
Hi there, been lurking on these forums for a little while so I figured I'd see if you can help me out.
I bought two longbows a while ago, an OMP Ozark Hunter and the Sierra (same thing), ones 40 lb and the other 50, at least that's what they are supposed to be.
I realize they are often not dead...
A couple of years ago my kids and I made two pyramid ash bows which got a lot of use target shooting in our back garden. Unfortunately one snapped last year and the other has become very warped.
I've become a bit more ambitious and am now planning to make two recurve bows...
